Do I Have A Recalled DePuy Hip Implant?
If you have pain following a hip replacement or hip resurfacing accomplished with a DePuy hip product, and want to learn whether you have a metal-on-metal hip implant as well as whether the implant has been recalled, you should:
- contact your orthopedic surgeon and ask about who manufactured the product that was used during your procedure;
- request a copy of the medical records for your surgery; or
- contact an attorney so that s/he can determine the identity of the device manufacturer.
Most doctors and hospitals are required to record and keep on file the manufacturer and serial or lot number of all implanted medical products.
If your hospital or doctor confirms that you received a recalled hip implant such as the DePuy ASR, you may be entitled to compensation for lifelong health care, medical expenses, medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
